We do this by visiting our passion and expected outcomes several times a day.

The Place for Passion Power
Amy Anderson when writing for Forbes quoted some famous people who have commented on the place of passion .
Warren Buffett, in giving secrets to success, expressed the importance of finding what brings meaning to your life and making it your focus each day.
Steve Jobs of Apple Inc. expressed that people should do what they love doing, sharing that it was his passion for his work and a belief that “people with passion can change the world for the better” that drove him.
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook states that people should find that thing they are most passionate about and pursue it. Zuckerberg said, “I think it’s important if you’re going to take on any big challenge, that you just love and really have faith in what you’re doing.
Passion power benefits
Passion power bestows many benefits as follows
Provides purpose so when we awaken each day we know where we are headed and we are ready to commence our activities.
Without purpose, people drift through life underachieving.
Often, that sense of under or non-achievement can eat at their sense of self-worth.
Improves health. This is a noticeable outcome as passion power can remove us from depression and despondency and leads us to value our good health and to find ways to maintain it.
Inspires persistence because we become vitalized by our goals which in turn helps us keep pressing forward .
Fuels Energy as we focus on achieving our objectives.
Strengthens confidence as we develop our plans for accomplishment; we always feel better and more confident if we know our direction and pathway.
Improves resilience because we develop a framework to meet all difficulties through passion power.
Reduces stress as all of the above benefits fall into place and takes the weight off our shoulders.
Enhances relationships because we become more balanced people and better able to engage with others.
A Case Study
Authors Robert Kriegel and Louis Patler cite a study of 1,500 people over 20 years showing the value of finding your passions within your life:
At the outset of the study, the 1,500 members were divided into two groups.
Group A, 83 percent of the sample, who were embarking on a career chosen for the prospect of making money now in order to do what they want later.
Group B, the other 17 percent of the sample, who had chosen their career path for the reverse reason, they were going to pursue (their passions) what they want to do now and worry about money later.
The data showed some startling revelations:
At the end of the 20 years, 101 of the 1,500 had become millionaires.
Of the millionaires, all but 100 out of 101- were from Group B, the group that had chosen to pursue what they loved (their passions)!
This is all sound evidence that passion plays an important role in achievement.
The Demand for People of Passion.
In today’s rapidly changing business environment, business needs passionate workers because such workers can drive extreme and sustained performance improvement.
This is more than the one-time performance “bump” that follows a bonus or the implementation of a worker engagement initiative.
These workers have both personal resilience and an orientation toward learning and improvement.
This helps businesses develop the resilience needed to withstand and grow stronger in the face of continuous market challenges and disruptions.
This is particularly so for small business success in areas like affiliate marketing.
